Sam Rockwell Joins Hill in The Sitter


TheWrap reports that Sam Rockwell (Conviction, Iron Man 2) is in final negotiations to join Jonah Hill in The Sitter, the David Gordon Green-directed comedy at 20th Century Fox.

The film follows a college student, suspended for the semester and living back at home with his single mom, who has a night to remember when he gets talked into baby-sitting the eccentric kids next door — two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl.

According to the site, “Rockwell will play a villainous drug dealer along with J.B. Smoove of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ fame.”

Max Records, Kevin Hernandez and Landry Bender play Hill’s troublemaking charges, while Rockwell’s Conviction co-star Ari Graynor will play the female lead.
